I was both engaged and moved by the story. The inside view of an adolescent boy's life and mind....a world of navigating personal loss, change, video games and dirt bike/motorcycles. The set up does actually have its roots in reality and is not totally a figment of fiction. Rural New Mexico made a great back drop and I enjoyed the writing style as well. Good read for both adults and younger adults, M or F.

Who would ever believe that video gaming and dirt biking could be so interesting. This is a wonderful look into both endeavors. It is technically a boy's young adult book. Good writing and an inquiring look into a young mind make this a very intriguing book and a fun read for the young  at heart either male or female. Some great descriptions and characters that stay with you.

Seventeen-year-old Arlo Santiago lives in a dusty corner of New Mexico where his two passions are extreme dirt-bike riding and playing a video game called "Drone Pilot." He's so good at the game that the U.S. government hires him to fly real drones over Pakistan. However, Arlo is still reeling emotionally from a violent death in his family. Will he take the big paycheck and commit violence against a terrorist leader half a world away, or find another solution to his troubles? He's got a lot of them, including an unemployed father who drinks, a sister with Huntington's Disease, and a girlfriend who won’t let him run from his past. The joy of this book is watching Arlo rally his talents and skills to deal with his ever-mounting problems. It's a gritty, funny, tragic, soaring novel.
